MINDFUL GARDENING yields great results

PAIN-FREE GARDENING?  You can do it!

Here are some important 'COMFORTABLE GARDENING' tips from Reno Feldenkrais:

(1)  Always keep some attention on your body so that you don't forget about yourself and hurt yourself unconsciously; 
(2)  CHANGE POSITIONS frequently if you feel uncomfortable or if you feel pain;  
(3) Use your whole body to support weed pulling and other tasks, working at an angle or from the side, not straight down in front of you; 
(4) Bend from the knees and hips, not from your lower spine; 
(5)  Being more mindful as you tend your beautiful garden will save you pain and give you pleasure.  AND you will reap the rewards in your well-being!
